Proprietors White

Proprietors Reserve White Wine Details
Price: $13.99 per bottle

Description: Clear, platinum in color. Forward nose of peaches, lemons, burnt straw. Medium body with jazzy acidity that makes flavors of peach, lemon/lime and mint play off each other like a symphony of wind instruments.The finish is clean and long. For those unfamiliar with this wine it might be likened to the mouth-filling and fruity New Zealand style of dry Sauvignon Blanc.

Varietal Definition
Vidal Blanc:
A white French hybrid once widely planted in the south of France, it is more suitable for growing in warm and humid climates like the South. These vines are prolific, producing large golden berries, suitable for eating out of hand as table grapes. When vinified, Villard Blanc makes a fruity, mildly intense white wine (somewhat Sauvignon Blanc like) of fairly neutral and simple flavors. Primarily used for blending.
Commonly grown in the cooler regions of North America, this french-american hybrid used for making white dry, late-harvest and ice-wines has its origins in the Chardonnay grape. Currently very popular as a dessert wine because of its restrained fruitiness and good balance. Same as Ravat.
